Restart meetings

Posted on July 18, 2020 at 3:56pm 0 Comments


I would like to restart meetings.  I say that without knowing:

1. With social distancing of 2 metres, what is the capacity of the Harbour House room?

2. What is the normal attendance at a club meeting?

I miss seeing fellow club members, the educational programs and the monthly themed slide show.

I am willing to assist helping arrange the room with proper social distancing and with putting chairs away.  I am also alright with wearing a mask…


What kind of camera?

At last night's club meeting, many of us were curious about David Ellingsen's camera, settings, etc.

It reminding me of this article:

That said, David's comments about how he uses his camera helped me.

A friend of mine, Martha Taylor, is Salt Spring Island's newest marriage commissioner.  She would like to have a list of wedding photographers and their contact information to provide to couples planning a Salt Spring wedding.  She cannot accept a fee for referral, but would appreciate a thank you.

If you are interested: email Martha Taylor.

Please do do answer this blog posting as I am not monitoring…

For club members from two years ago you will remember the excellent educational program by Isabelle Groc.  Isabelle is a world famous wildlife photographer and naturalist who lives in Vancouver and on SSI.

This group will infuse some new energy and direction into the Club. Feedback from club members indicates that people would like more interactive educational activities (workshops, classes, small field trips etc.) and maybe a schedule of educational opportunities ahead of time so that people can plan to attend.

The Victoria Camera Club has an external speaker every month and are willing to share their list of speakers so we can participate, at a cost of $5 a person. The club has funds to cover this at the moment. This would require using the  Zoom format (which has worked so well during this Pandemic).

Club meetings will resume in October, giving this new group time to work out their ideas for new directions.

Some people are cautious about in person meetings (because of health issues) and others are ready and able to jump back in. Maybe in person meetings and Zoom meetings can co-exist. Something to talk about.

Maureen has offered to look into a monthly newsletter with, possibly, more coverage than the website offers such as emails, using facebook etc.

Avril would like to see an improved use of the website: more posts, more comments, more helpful critiquing. We might need a refresher course to remind us how to give constructive feedback.

Doug has a show about Covid in September at the library -  in the Community Program Room. He will give a talk on September 7th at Noon. This will be previously unseen material, not the triptychs we have seen on the website.

Photosynthesis has a virtual show coming up, starting on August 31st. Some club members also belong to this photography group.

There is no theme yet for the photography challenge in October but when that is decided it will be communicated to everyone.
